Description
English Lavender
Lavandula angustifolia

Although commonly referred to as "English" lavender, its origins are in the mountains of Northern Spain and the western Mediterranean region. It has been cultivated as an ornamental and medicinal plant for centuries. 

When in bloom, the sweet smelling blossoms attract butterflies and are said to repel deer. It can be used in a moon garden to add texture and fragrance.

Use caution when planting other fragrant plants near lavender as it can sometimes be overpowered by other scented flowers.  Once established, lavender does well in low water, drought conditions and can tolerate low temperatures.  It is hardy down to USDA zone 5.  It does not do well in heavy, continually wet soils.

Historically, lavender has been medicinally for various ailments, either in the form of an oil or as an herbal tea, as an aromatic, carminative and nervine.  It was used as a condiment to "comfort the stomach,"[1] as a component sent of various perfumes, and as a massage and aroma therapy oil.  Dried lavender flowers are used in sachets as a moth repellent.

Each packet contains 0.1 gram, which is approximately 80 seeds.
